Library patrons take reading seriously, and librarians find ways to bring book and reader together. One way is in compiling reading lists. The Texas Library Association recently released the 2017 Lariat List, which, according to its website, is outstanding adult fiction with the criteria of being a pleasure to read.
Library Director Lisa Youngblood participated on the selection committee to compile a list that covers a lot of reading territory, and is sure to satisfy.
To access the Lariat List, go to www.ci.harker-heights.tx.us/libraryand follow the link on the HHPL Special Events page.
The Stewart C. Meyer Harker Heights Public Library is offering teens the opportunity to volunteer at the library this summer. Volunteer hours can apply to clubs, or classes, and job skills learned here can be taken to other jobs. For information, call Rose at 254-953-5491.
